The development of quality control genotyping approaches: a case study using elite maize lines
(Public Library of Science, 2016)
Quality control (QC) of germplasmidentity and purity is a critical component of breeding and conservation activities. SNP genotyping technologies and increased availability of markers provide the opportunity to employ ...
Genome-wide analyses reveal footprints of divergent selection and popping-related traits in CIMMYT’s maize inbred lines
(Oxford University Press, 2020)
Learning how to rescue a landrace: a study of the giant maize, Jala, and the community who grows it
Germplasm banks, such as CIMMYT’s, have been the ex situ sources of crop genetic diversity for plant breeders and researchers for decades. Increasingly, these institutions are providing seed from ex situ collections and ...
Identifying loci with breeding potential across temperate and tropical adaptation via EigenGWAS and EnvGWAS
Understanding the genomic basis of adaptation in maize is important for gene discovery and the improvement of breeding germplasm, but much remains a mystery in spite of significant population genetics and archaeological ...
